HC Deb 15 December 1949 vol 470 c310W
106. Brigadier Prior-Palmer

asked the Minister of Health whether he is aware that great hardship is being caused to dwellers in caravans by local authorities who are seeking to prevent their continued occupation of sites and caravans during the winter; and if he will issue a circular to all local authorities advising them that genuine cases where no other accommodation is available should be given sympathetic consideration.

Mr. Bevan

Persons aggrieved by refusal of a licence under the Public Health Act to use moveable dwellings have a right of appeal to the courts, and I do not feel that a Ministerial circular is necessary at present.
